GIS intern EN

We can use some help! Are you skilled in application development, interested in working in an environment where (GIS) data is used on a daily basis to strategically advise spatial processes and would you like to contribute to the energy transition in the Netherlands? Then we are looking for you!

This is us

Generation.Energy has been the strategic spatial expert within the energy transition in the Netherlands for over five years. We work with an enthusiastic team of designers and specialists on the spatial possibilities of energy transition in the Netherlands. We work fact-based: the basis of our work is rooted in data and GIS. We develop our own content related to the complex issues – at different scales we use visualizations, serious games and GIS tools to clarify the complexity of the tasks. From our office in The Hague, we work closely with knowledge partners on assignments from the government, municipalities and provinces, among others.

Our next step? The further development of our online GIS viewer, with which we can make an even greater contribution to the transition to sustainable energy. That’s what we need you for!
